The Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist will be observed with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 6:30pm on Friday, June 24th. In an effort to embrace our catholic witness, St. Paul’s has committed to observe all Principle Feasts and Other Feasts of Our Lord. This is an acknowledgment that the liturgy is not just something we do on Sundays, but a sacramental vision that leads to personal transformation in all areas of our lives.

 

The Principle Feasts observed in this Church are the following:

Easter Day
Ascension Day
The Day of Pentecost
Trinity Sunday
All Saints’ Day, November 1
Christmas Day, December 25
The Epiphany, January 6

The following Holy Days are regularly observed throughout the year.
Unless otherwise ordered in the preceding rules concerning Sundays, they
have precedence over all other days of commemoration or of special
observance:

Other Feasts of Our Lord

The Holy Name Saint John the Baptist
The Presentation The Transfiguration
The Annunciation Holy Cross Day

Feasts that fall on a day of the week other than Sunday are typically observed with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 6:30pm in the church.
